We use fresh herbs when volatile, delicate and fragile active constituents are needed.
Herbs, Etc. buys freshly picked herbs that are shipped overnight to us.
Our proprietary kinetic maceration method extracts up to 50 percent more active constituents than other conventional methods.
We use dried herbs when stable, hardy and concentrated active constituents are needed.
Herbs, Etc. buys whole dried herbs and grinds what we need when we need it, ensuring the freshest dried powder possible.
Using liquid nitrogen during the grinding process prevents heat damage to the herbs.
We then pack the ground dry herbs in cold process percolators and add the alcohol and water solution that extracts the most active constituents possible.
Most manufacturers buy already ground powders, which means they don’t know if other herbs have been added to the powder they received.
It also means that the potency of the already ground powder is significantly lessened between the time it ships to the manufacturer, is used in an herbal medicine and makes it to the store shelf.
Classic Liquid Extracts
When making our classic liquid extracts, we pack ground dry herbs in cold process percolators and add alcohol and water.
That solution extracts the most active constituents possible.
Non Alcohol Liquid Extracts
We make these extracts by removing the alcohol with another proprietary cold processing method.
We then bottle it for those who want a non alcohol liquid extract or use it for our convenient softgels.
Our softgels are filled with our non alcohol liquid extract and encapsulated at our Santa Fe, New Mexico manufacturing facility.
Most herbal medicine companies don’t make their own softgels. They send their extract to contract manufacturers who use it to make the softgels these companies sell under their brand name.
Organic Processes and Herbs
Herbs, Etc. uses organic herbal extraction processes. Our manufacturing facility has been certified as an organic processor for decades.
We use as many organic herbs as we can source. Not all herbs can be grown organically. Some can only be harvested from the wild.

Osha grows wild in the high-altitude Rocky Mountain range. It has been wild harvested for hundreds of years.
Its root has been used by generations of Southwestern Native Americans and Hispanics to support their respiratory health.
Herbs, Etc. takes a personal interest in preserving this herb. For over 20 years, we’ve worked with a leading university to study Osha sustainability.
